Time is Swiftly Going By

The summer is nearing the end.  This weekend, we take Allen to college...but first we pick him up from the summer camp job he has been working at in the Adirondack Mountains. Audra is up there too for the week as a camper at the same camp. On Sunday we take him to Roberts Wesleyan.  in just under two weeks, my youngest daughter has orientation for her first year at the high school.

I have had 6 interviews this summer and so far have not gotten a job. This is not what I planned for when I went back to get my master's degree.  I'm just not sure what to do next.  In the past 2 1/2 years, I have had 18 interviews.  One of those 18 interviews ended up with me getting a long term sub job.  (I had another long term sub job that I got without even having an interview.)  This was the year that I felt like there might really be some hope getting a job as a school librarian.  What do I do next?  This all hurts too much.

You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Time spins on with no thought to whether or not we can keep up, or even if we are getting nauseated from the spinning... I think sometimes of Ann Voskamp's admonition to stop and enjoy the moment, but mostly I forget to do so.

I love you. I think maybe next week, if you are free, I will take a ride down your direction so you can put another check mark by drink iced tea with a friend.
